PostSubject: Stratovarius ; Symphonic power metal   August 10th 2010, 10:42

Hi folks!
I thought; let's post something again.
And here is the very awesome power metal band; Stratovarius (1984 - Finland).
Current line-up;
Timo Kotipelto - Vocals
Matias Kupiainen - Guitar
Jens Johansson - Keyboards
Lauri Porra - Bass
Jörg Michael - Drums

There are two things that give me chills about this band; Their artwork (FA-BOU-LOUS) and their songs Smile
I like the lyrics, intros and bridges (solos).
They have 12 (!) CDs, 2 Live-albums, 2 demos, 16 singles, 4 best-of compilations and 1 DVD (rated with average 86%)
In general I give this band 8.5/10.
For my fav song; Eagleheart, I give 9/10.


Soul of a vagabond -- 8/10.


Eagleheart -- Goosebumps intro -- 9/10


Cold winter nights -- 8.5/10


Black night -- 7.5/10

Cheers & rate up!

lol... was one of the first metalbands i was a fan of... still have a shirt of them with Timo Tolkki on guitar.....

Major fan of them, or at least was... haven't listened to them in quite some time, but perhaps i shall soon again.

Kinda got in a fight with Timo Tolkki on their forums quite a while ago which was the reason to stop participating on their forums.

Try Black Diamond or the best song from then (in my opinion) "infinity".

By the way Razz, respond to my Kamelot post, try and listen to them!

They actually were one of the first metal bands I checked out.
I saw their performance @ Wacken 2007 and I pretty much loved it.
But I never really got that into them though. (since I'm not very into power metal)

I know Kamelot (Epica which I'm fan of -- Simone Simons -- The haunting)
Black Diamond is indeed a good song and Infinity as well, I bought a limited edition (I guess) from them; infinity Very Happy

Yes, I'm sure. I saw their ending movie and Apocalyptica will go as well. You need to check the site out.
I would like to go there too, It's a very big festival.

This was actually first band I listened to when I didn't even know that I would listen to metal one day. My favorite track is "Father time", definitely.
